From time to time, we all get down and out with the trials and disappointments of the world we live in. We get discouraged when things don’t go our way and we beat ourselves up trying to solve the problem in our heads. The only problem with this method is we cannot change the circumstances of what happened and it usually makes the situation worse. No matter how you see it, the Titanic still sank, Pearl Harbor was still attacked, and the Towers still fell on September 11, 2001. The point is, when tragedy strikes we can’t get into a low point and remain there. Grief needs to happen, but dwelling on it is never a good plan. The Bible teaches us that dwelling on things of the past is never a good idea and is frowned upon in the scriptures “Isaiah 43:18”. To overcome the situation we must establish a positive attitude for what is good in our lives and search for the purpose God has given us. When we put our focus and hope on the better things in our life, we tend to overlook the bad and it will help us to “beat the blues”.
Mission Trip Summer 2014 Update
We are almost 4 months away from our Mission Trip this summer as we begin to count down the days and make our plans. We will return to Panama City, Florida and work with the Salvation Army once again. This was an incredible trip last year and they have extended the invitation to welcome us back with open arms. The dates are set for May 25-31, and we are asking for you to begin praying now for our students, our sponsors, and those we will come in contact with. This is such a great opportunity for our students and we appreciate your prayers. We will need to rent 2 vans for our trip and if you would like to help with our van/gas costs, please designate an offering to “Mission Miles” or “Mission Trip”.
